I agree that sadly there are not many complete N3 parsers, so we should use turtle.

Just above you say that we should not making a list of all serialisations. Now you want one more, that is not standard. As we have only very few people whole have implemented the EARL reports for their endpoint, I also find it difficult for the moment to tell where we are standing.


Having so many serialisations is probably starting to look a bit silly, especially for people coming from the hard nosed security world.

Before adding json I would even prefer to add plain PEM files for that community.

Perhaps we should have a version of this protocol as an RFC which just uses the PEM file?

that's a good idea
